Finally: Lena Dunham Expresses Opinion On Hobby Lobby Decision

Font Size:

There’s no better wisdom than received wisdom. And when it comes to parroting things she’s heard from people she believes to be smarter than her — which doesn’t really narrow it down — Lena Dunham is tops.

Take it away, genius!


This is true, in theory. It’s also irrelevant, because that’s not what just happened.

Lena Dunham is very stupid, but perhaps this analogy might find its way through that geologically thick skull:


Do you get what he’s saying here, Lena? An employer gives money to its employees for the work they do. Those employees can then spend that money on the things they want and need. Including, for the purposes of this example, birth control. These employees’ access to birth control has not been denied in any way. On the contrary, they can buy as much of it as they can afford, if they so choose.

Access not denied. At all.

This is just another moronic cause célèbre, like the Chick-fil-A nonsense. Let’s just hope this one doesn’t inspire another gunman to take matters into his own hands, like Floyd Lee Corkins tried to do. That’d be the first Hobby Lobby story the media wouldn’t want to cover.
